Hi Heilige Oilam,



I was thinking of a sweet idea for the overall GYE brotherhood / community - from now until Erev YK.



The concept goes as follows:



Although posting here provides amazing chizuk for guys struggling, bottom line is that when alone with our computers, there’s very little that can prevent falls. However, perhaps we can band TOGETHER to give HKB"H the following collective and communal gift:



Every night, I am asking that ONE person stretch beyond his natural limits and stay clean in the face of taavah...He then posts his success, and there you got it - he is that night’s “miracle.” (Sorry Grant for plagiarizing your Chanuka shtickel)...And don’t forget to describe how you you through the fire!



And although it’s “only one night,” you have now joined with a remarkable community - to present our Creator with the ultimate communal gift of sacrifice (i.e., קרבן צבור) before the holiest day.



I’m perfectly cool if this idea flops....at least I tried : )

Thank you Friday night chevra! (Agav: 20 Elul is the yahrtzeit of the heilige Ponevizher Rav, so you can have him in mind)

Markz, you crack me up. If only I could reach out to you for comic relief during my stressful moments...and FYI Biden is waaayy too pashut to have learned in Grodno (Grodnians are lamdanim and super coherent)..

21 Elul, anyone?

I will take 21 Elul. Is that MS? Please explain in a little more detail for us incoherent non Grodnoians, what is expected.

I'm in for shabbos. I'm going to be in a sticky situation over shabbos and could use the extra push in the shemiras einayim department. I am assuming this is for wherever I feel I am holding, to overcome the challenge of that specific level in that particular thing and/or moment... Please  correct me if I am wrong.

The hope is that every day, another few from the chevra push themselves beyond what they would believe is possible.

Hoping to come as a group "Likras Yom Kippur" - as an energized and disciplined army.

The specifics are up to you - לב יודע מרת נפשו /   מיר דארף  זיך קענען

Good Shabbos!

So basically on shabbos I had to be by a mixed kiddush by a pretty modern shul...
 Baruch Hashem with some planning and an extra push from this forum I was able to avoid being nichshal and was very careful with my eyes. Not just not lusting but not looking (most of the time) BH

I will take tonight Monday night. Monday night is a particular important night for me to stay clean. Life may get stressful but I will stay strong because that's what I really want from myself.

Still trying to dig myself out of a hole so this should help.

Wow, you made my day!

During Elul, the Aibishter is literally standing next to us with a shovel - helping us dig out of that hole.

May these special days bring a complete turnaround / attitude shift for us all!

Tuesday night (Elul 24)....anyone?

I’ll take Tuesday. I’ve been doing poorly lately… Time to cut it out

O.E. Shlit"a

If you are struggling tomorrow, feel free to PM me.

The oilam is mamash rooting you on - hopefully this Tuesday can be the beginning of a sustainable streak : )

BTW I always recall Elul as being especially hard; the pressure was just too much. (Motzei YK was almost always a fall)

Thank you, thank you! ~ IMG

Chashuveh Oilam,

Tuesday night / Wednesday (Elul 24)....anyone? It's the Yahrzeit of the Chofetz Chaim - surely a segula for a long sustainable streak!
